    Characters’ iPods - Songs that make you think of certain manga/anime characters

    There are some songs that as soon as you listen to them you can’t help but think of a certain manga/anime character. Songs, that if it was possible, they would be part of that character’s iPod for sure.

    So this is a thread to share those songs along with the name of characters they remind you of.

    Here’s my first contribution to this thread :

    Song: Who's That Girl - Hilary Duff
    Series: Inuyasha
    Character: Kikyo

    Every time I listen to that song Kikyo from Inuyasha immediately comes to my mind. I can easily see her singing that song in regard to both Kagome and Inuyasha.

    lol All that comes to mind right now are the character theme songs in the anime's themselves...

    Seriously, I just think of, say, Level5 Judgelight and it's Biribiri...

    Wait...Actually, with In the End by Linkin Park, the lyrics really remind me of Vegita.

    let me think about that...

    I dunno about a certain character but MIKA - Kick ass (We are young) makes me always think of the Strawhat pirates as a whole.

    We are young, we are strong, were not looking for where we belong
    We're not cool, we are free and we're are running with blood on our knees~

    For you by azu or all of azu songs always make me think of Sakura from naruto.
    I guess its because that same ending song featured her.
    ^Butterfly, the first theme song of digimon makes me think of the strawhats
    I'm not sure why.
    Love songs that have nothing to do with an anime makes me think of character pairings too

    Paradise & Dreams by Ultrabeat x Darren Styles

    Reminds me of Ash Ketchum and Pokemon in general. A really uplifting track that makes me remember my good times in the past, all those childhood desires, wishes and fantasies. The vocals also sounds suitable for a Pokemon theme song.

    The following song reminds me of two characters, specifically of my OTP in the whole anime world. That pairing is Nagisa x Tomoya from Clannad. The lyrics of the song are so perfect for this pairing. It describes pretty well what Nagisa and Tomoya go through during the first season of Clannad.

    I re-watched “The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian” a few days ago and as soon as I listen to “The Call” by Regina Spektor IchiRuki came to my mind. I thought the lyrics of that song was perfect to describe the relationship between Ichigo and Rukia, especially to describe the scene when
    Spoiler: Bleach show
    And judging by the following MMV(Manga Music Video), I’m not the only one who thinks “The Call” is an IchiRuki song.

    Re: Characters’ iPods - Songs that make you think of certain manga/anime characters

    Ah, this is a great thread! I love finding songs that are good matches for manga/anime characters.

    For some reason, Kunieda Aoi from Beelzebub comes up a lot when I listen to songs. Like Prescillafrom Bat For Lashes:

    Quote Quote:
    She really loves him, Prescilla
    She really loves him, Prescilla
    She really loves him, I tell you

    To live life outside the whirl
    To break the cross that bears her name
    She's not your queen anymore, queen of the highway
    Needs something better than running away

    Mainly because Kunieda is in love with the main character, and she's know as "The Queen" of Ishiyama High because she's the strongest female delinquent there. The song is about a girl trying to change her life around because she wants to settle down and not be on the run anymore.

    Also when I listen to Muse's Time is Running Out, I immediately think of Detective Conan. Its not so much the lyrics but the overall feeling of helplessness, and getting a feeling of pleasure while knowing there's something more pressing out there that you can't avoid. In this case, it reminds me of Conan loving to solve mysteries, but knowing that his detective ways is the reason he's in his current predicament. And on top of that the mess he got himself into is the main reason stopping him from having a relationship with the girl he loves and knows she loves him back.

    Quote Quote:
    You're something beautiful
    A contradiction
    I want to play the game
    I want the friction

    You will be
    The death of me
    Yeah, you will be
    The death of me

    Bury it
    I won't let you bury it
    I won't let you smother it
    I won't let you murder it

    Re: Characters’ iPods - Songs that make you think of certain manga/anime characters

    You know I was thinking about posting in this thread today, but then I was either too lazy to look for it or forgot xD. Anyway, not really a song that I can envision a character in the series having in their iPod, but everytime I listen to We Own the Sky I think of Narutaru. The whole song plus video makes me think of youth and being a child, and seeing as Narutaru focuses a lot on that (Bokurano does as well for that matter) I think both fit very well together. I think the song also fits really well with how the series becomes gradually darker, turning into a deconstruction of your average shonen series.

    Thanks to Guren no Yumiya, a lot of symphonic metal bands suit Shingeki no Kyojin very well. The following Within Temptation song in particular describes Eren in a nutshell.



    Quote Quote:
    Raised in this madness
    You're on your own
    It makes you fearless
    Nothing to lose

    Dreams are a joke here
    They get in your way
    That's what what you need to fight day by day.

    Oh damn, the war is coming
    Oh damn, you feel you want it
    Oh damn, just bring it on today

    You can't live without the fire
    It's the heat that makes you strong
    'Cause you're born to live and fight it all away
    You can't hide what lies inside you
    It's the only thing you've known
    You'll embrace it and never walk away
    Don't walk away
